Updates On Our COVID-19 Hotline for Ohio’s Incarcerated Population

Through our hotline, [email protected], we’ve heard from over 100 people with incarcerated loved ones – mostly in the state’s prisons – reporting that people are in danger, and that they are terrified now that the virus is in the prisons. And we have learned that the DRC is not testing prison staff, a key vector for spread both within the prisons and in the free community. We are encouraging people to keep reaching out to us, and we have recommended immediate action to heavily decarcerate all of Ohio’s detention facilities.
